Parquet Courts Announce 10th Anniversary Livestream From Brooklyn’s Pioneer Works
The New York indie rock band Parquet Courts came together near the end of 2010, and they released their debut album, the largely unheard cassette only American Specialties, in 2011. They didn’t really hit our radar until they released Light Up Gold in 2012. Since then, Parquet Courts have become a glorious throwback — a messy and smart and sardonic underground rock band that’s can play big venues without pretending to be anything other than a messy and smart and sardonic underground rock band. Next month, they’ll celebrate their first full decade as a band with a virtual performance.
Here’s how the band describes the coming festivities: “Ten years ago, our adventure began by playing our first show to virtually no one, and to celebrate we’ve decided to play a show to everyone, virtually.” The band’s anniversary show goes down 12/10. It’ll be a livestreamed set, beamed out directly from Brooklyn’s Pioneer Works.
The band is also promising “rare archival footage” and “new interviews,” and there will also be exclusive merch available only to people who buy tickets to the virtual show. You’ll also be able to keep rewatching the set for 48 hours. You can get your virtual tickets here.
